Students at North Harringay primary school in Geater London, England, were surprised to find that a flying saucer had crash-landed in the school’s pavement. It had apparently landed so hard that it was half-buried in the asphalt!
A forensic officer was spotted inspecting the UFO while police closely guarded the scene, which was roped off while investigations took place.
The whole event was just the inspiration pupils needed for a creative writing day at the school, and was orchestrated by Emma Hassan, its literacy leader, with the help of one very creative parent and a local PC.
A parent had built the spacecraft for the school and also showed up dressed as a forensic detective. A police constable was also recruited to lend authenticity to the stunt. Many examples of creative writing were accomplished that day and a good time was had by all.
